The club was formed from an amalgamation of the East Kent Club inaugurated in 1873 and the Canterbury Club which was founded in 1875. When the premises of the Canterbury Club were destroyed by enemy bombing in 1942, the two clubs joined to form the present Kent & Canterbury Club.
The Committee promotes and sponsors a mixture of interesting social events ranging from full black tie dinners with four or five courses through to topical talks and lectures with fork suppers.
Our club house offers extensive facilities including dining rooms, bar, lounge areas, reading rooms, seminar & meeting rooms, a snooker room and a separate squash court. A well equipped kitchen with modem facilities is available to provide a wide variety of meals, including an excellent lunch menu, with a Friday “special” and high quality good value lunchtime bar snacks
